ELs and Special Education

Studies indicate that there is variability in how LEAs identify ELs as eligible for special education services; some LEAs over-identify, while others under-identify ELs as eligible for special education services when compared to non-ELs. It is important for the multidisciplinary team to include experts such as the ESL specialist to accurately determine whether ELs are eligible for special education.
